Inferno Hybrid Sweet Corn (sy)

Description
Early-maturing, synergistic, yellow corn has an amazingly sweet, tender taste. Produces 16-18 rows of glossy, golden kernels that fill the 7½-8½ in. ears. The blunt-tipped ears are wrapped in handsome husks with long, attractive flag leaves. Tasty fresh, canned or frozen. Synergistic hybrids have a very high sugar content, tender-crisp texture and slow conversion of sugars to starches. When planting, isolate from super-sweet (sh2) and normal or high-sugar (su) hybrids. Seeds should be spaced 10-12 in. apart in rows 36 in. apart. For adequate pollination, plant corn seeds in blocks of at least four rows. Approx. 250 seeds per pkt. 73 DAYS.
All Gurney's corn seed is now treated.
